  • I had a birthday party here for my four-year-old son about a month back. Overall everything was great, we had plenty of space, the kids all had a blast, and most of the staff was extremely polite and helpful. I only rated at 4 stars because it was a little costly and part of that cost was us having a person that was dedicated to help with our party and that person had a pretty poor attitude and didn't seem to want to interact with us very much. Overall it did not ruin or greatly affect the party and I would still recommend it to anyone maybe that person was just having an off day.
  • Truly interactive and geared towards the kids! Most museums seem to think at an adult level instead of what the littles want to see and do. Here the kids can touch everything and anything. Toys are always being organized and areas kept tidy. The workers are kind and seem to enjoy what they do. My 2 year old had a blast.
